Coastal German Shepherd Rescue

Maya has been adopted! 12-18-2006

Female about 0 old.

Maya was sadly given up by her owners - she is very timid around tiny children and toddlers. Maya has been through several different obedience classes as a puppy and then as an adult. She is very bright and knows the commands "sit" (also knows the hand command for sit) "come" "down" "wait" "go to your bed" and "quiet".

She is very well behaved in the house and prefers to spend the majority of her time indoors. She can stay in the house alone for many hours and is respectful of everything - she would do best in a home where she gets to spend a lot of time inside hanging or cuddling with her owners. She loves to lay in the sun and play chase around the house or in the backyard. Maya loves to go for runs, walks, to the beach (she loves water - probably the Lab in her (her mother was a chocolate lab), hiking, camping and she travels well in the car. She will be 5 years old in November.

Update 9/17/06 from Maya's foster Mom

Maya lives in a foster home with 4 other dogs, 2 very bossy females, 1 crotchity old male who is always scolding her and another very snobbish anti-social male. If you can only imagine what Maya had to deal with when she stepped into her new foster home . . . . . . . well, we are happy to report that Maya did extremely well! She is a very well mannered dog and knows how to handle situations when dealing with difficult dogs like her foster brothers and sisters. She is an absolute peacemaker and does not have a mean bone in her body. The best part is that her foster siblings didn’t know how to react once Maya handed them what they wanted, they were a bit baffled, you can see the look in their eyes and if I had to guess what was on their mind it would be “this can’t be real, she’s too nice and too easy to like, how can that be”.

Maya transition to her foster home was very easy, for her and for her new foster Mommy and Daddy. Because of her previous training it was easy to “speak” to her in commands and watch her follow them without a problem as though she’s lived with us for years on end. She is a delight to have at home.

We couldn’t believe that she is turning 5, Maya is extremely agile and goes for 2-4 mile walks a day in the country which she craves. Her teeth are superb, she has a wonderful attitude, she is such an easy girl to have and very loving. I think if there is anything that stands out about this girl is that she is well mannered and gets along with all types of dogs.


The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible when permitted by law. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
